This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux�s dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines.

This once unheralded terroir continues to go from strength to strength under the guidance of proprietors Chantal and Gerard Perse. A new drainage system throughout the vineyard has been installed, and... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Monbousquet 750ml

The 2006 promotion to Grand Cru Classé for this classic chateau was a definite recognition of its dedication to quality. With sandy/gravelly soil vineyarrds located some 500 meters on the southerly slopes of St.Émilion, the wines produced consistently display artful balance and graceful structure. Put together in the classic Bordelais way, with 18 to 24 months in new barrique then bottled without filtering. One finds a complex blend of espresso, freshly turned earth and vanilla mingling with the varietals' classic signature fruit notes. Exceptionally pure, but not austere, fine for now or 10 + years in the cellar. 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker's Notes:

"A blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2006 possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of espresso roast, damp earth, new oak, black cherries, and black currants. Medium to full-bodied with exceptional purity, surprising intensity, good texture, and sweet tannin in the finish, this unfiltered cuvee should drink well for 12-15 years." Robert Parker92 Points, Wine Advocate

Tasting Notes:

A complex wine with notes of espresso, oak, black currant and a sweet, dry finish.
